CREATING A SURVEY MAP OF THE PAN-EUROPEAN ECOLOGICAL
FOR CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE: PRELIMINARY RESULTS
The end of September 2001saw the preliminary results of the project Creating a Survey Map of the Pan-European Ecological Network (PEEN) for Central and Eastern Europe.
The project, begun in January 2000, is aimed at developing a survey map as a means of exchanging information, developing methodology, and identifying places where more data is required to set up a regional ecological network. The project is being carried out under the aegis of the UN Expert Committee for Development of the Pan-European Eco-Network.
In mid-October 2001 the preliminary results were sent to more than 100 organizations for review. Reviewers included the conservation ministries of Byelorussia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldavia, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic and Estonia as well as several intergovernmental organizations and international NGOs. Their comments and corrections will be taken into consideration during the next stage of the Project that finishes in June 2002.
Those who would like to acquaint themselves with these preliminary results
